Despite having known for years about the rampant use of monkey labour in the Thai coconut industry – and after a recent PETA Asia investigation implicated coconut milk suppliers across Thailand in monkey abuse, despite their assurances – Woolworths is still refusing to do the right thing by moving its coconut milk supply chain out of Thailand.
In New Zealand, where Woolworths operates as Countdown, supermarket Pak’nSave has already stopped stocking coconut milk from these farms. However, Woolworths has yet to act.
Watch the latest investigative footage, and take action by urging Woolworths to remove Thai coconut milk from its supply chain.

PETA Asia’s third investigation into Thailand’s coconut industry has revealed that chained monkeys are still being forced to spend long hours climbing tall trees and picking heavy coconuts. In response to international criticism following the release of PETA Asia’s two previous related investigations, the Thai government and companies that make coconut products have claimed that monkeys are no longer used in the making of exported products – but PETA Asia’s most recent investigation confirmed that rampant abuse of primates is continuing to go unchecked and that Thai coconut industry insiders are deliberately hiding monkey labour in their supply chains.
In nature, macaques live in large groups with strict hierarchies and an intense focus on social relationships. But at one of the facilities investigated, juvenile monkeys to be trained for coconut picking were caged and kept away from other members of their own species. At another facility, investigators saw a chained female monkey who was also kept away from other macaques with no food or water nearby and little access to shade.
Monkeys in training are kept chained with rigid metal collars around their necks. Handlers use intimidation and abuse to teach them to obey. Investigative footage shows one trainer striking a monkey, dangling him by the neck, and then whipping him with the tether.
